Jason Giambi is still playing major league baseball, in case you hadn’t heard from him in a while, and yesterday he was hit by a pitch. That was his 174th career plunk, and that’s the 12th best plunk total ever achieved and the 2nd best plunk total ever achieved by a left handed batter. He’s only 9 HBPs behind Jake Beckley, who currently ranks as the most plunked left handed batter ever, with 183.
Aroldis Champman hit Brett Pill with a pitch clocked at 97.8 mph, making that the fastest moving plunk so far this season.
